In Cruz’s latest interview with the Truth Gazette, he hinted that he would consider running for President in 2024.
He based his rationale for this decision because he performed very well in the 2016 primaries. In the interview, which will be released on December 24, one clip was shared where the Truth Gazette’s Brilyn Hollyhand asked Cruz whether he would consider running for President again.

Senator Cruz answered confidently that he would be running in the 2024 primaries.
“Absolutely, in a heartbeat. I ran in 2016. It was the most fun I’d ever had in my life. We had a very crowded field. We had 17 candidates in the running – very strong field – and I ended up placing second. And you know, there’s a reason historically that the runner-up is almost always the next nominee.” Cruz said.
“And that’s been true going back to Nixon or Reagan or McCain or Romney – that has played out repeatedly. You come in with just an enormous base of support. You know, in 2016, we raised over $92 million. That was the most money any Republican has ever raised in the history of presidential primaries.” He concluded.
